HP monitor vs17 goes black with power light flashing
The screen flickers every 3 or 4 seconds no image shown, was working really well for a long time now. It'll start working after a long period left on, then just goes black again when it's left alone not in use. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, thank you in advanced.

Re: HP monitor vs17 goes black with power light flashing
I have repaired an HP 1702 monitor that had similar symptoms by replacing the capacitors on the power supply board but you have to have some electronic knowledge and do some soldering if you can buy the replacement capacitors($10+/-) from a supply store. They (at least 1) will be swollen up on the ends and may have a tar-like substance leaking from them. It is best to replace them all (may be 4 depending on the model).

first try entering VGA mode in the startup menu. u can get the startup menu by pressing the F8 key immediately after the POST screen. if the screen stabilizes try changing the resolution to 1024 by 768 which should work in normal mode. if that doesnt work then the monitors internal bulbs may be burnt. an electrician may fix this problem for you.
This is a bit tricky as you can get it fixed under warrenty but they will likely ask you to send back the entire computer not just the monitor. It is also something that you could fix or several shops could but the repair cost really isn't much less than a new monitor. You are not stuck using an HP monitor so anything will work and you can get quite a lot bigger or better for about $120 and up. Repair cost is going to be $80-$100 so as you can see for just a few dollars more you have a new warrentied monitor.
This sounds like the inverter has gone bad. If the bulb were bad only, you would see a faint image on the screen with a flashlight.
The problem is on this monitor, it will probably cost about $100 or so to take it to a shop to get it fixed, and that is nearing the cost of a new monitor.
If you are a little bit handy, and can disassemble the monitor, you can replace the inverter. The hardest thing about this, is getting the monitor faceplate open. Just use something firm and softer, such as a nylon spudger (this is something you can find online) or you can carefully use a thin scredriver. You just have to be careful, those cases are really tight.
Check that the power cord is fully plugged in first.
It is probably the inverter board inside the monitor. (if the screen does properly display ever then it is not the screen) It CAN be fixed but I do not suggest anyone open up a monitor (LCD or CRT) who is not "technically inclined."
If you really want to fix this particular one then take it to a local tech and get an estimate first. If it's almost as much as a new monitor then buy a new one.
HI. I had the same problem with mine. It would flash the screen on for a split second and then turn black, the whole time the power light remained green. Upon opening up the case, I pulled the combo power supply board/inverter board out for inspection. I noticed one of the capacitors had a bulge on top indicating it was bad. It was the the 680uf 25v capacitor. I desoldered it, and soldered in the new one. After hooking everything back up, bingo!! Monitor now works perfectly. I couldn't find an exact match to the capacitance locally, but I had a 1000uf 35v cap in my utility box. It worked fine as a replacement. You can usually go within 30 percent of tolerance and be alright. Just don't go under on capacitance or voltage. I hope this helps.
while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.
Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works
Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
try booting the computer in safemode you can do this by pressing f8 continuously when the computer is booting until a menu comes up select safemode. If this is unsuccessful then the monitor has a physical issue.
